Kobe University


A global hub of research, education and the co-creation of knowledge

Based on our founding philosophy of harmony between theory and practice, we engage in the search for knowledge and its application in society.


We are a comprehensive university with 10 faculties and 15 graduate schools. We emphasize diversity, internationality, excellence and flexibility in our education to prepare students for a sustainable and prosperous future.

We are independent in our pursuit of knowledge through basic and applied research.
We partner with society to co-create knowledge and apply our discoveries to resolving society's challenges.
